Good: Size & lightness, build quality, speed versitility i.e. use it for almost any application that is MS compatible.
Bad: Battery life - as an SSD netbook, I'd have expected 6-8 hrs, not 1-2hrs!
Comment: Boought to replace a Psion 5MX that finally bit the dust. Trouble is, it is so good, that you find yourself using it for web, email, video and stills etc etc.
I have a 15Gb SSD and have had no problem loading MS Office XP Pro + Nikon editor, Uplayer for DVD's (excellent by the way) Still have 7.5Gb left.
Ordered 2Gb ram upgrade from Crucial. I'll let you know how it goes.
Good: Light and small but usable size keypad
Bad: Hard drive too small to even get the machine started!
Comment: Don't get why I should have to pay for something that requires so much work just to get it doing what it says on the box? It is a mini laptop, therefore I charge it up and get to work.
But with this machine, after finding it ran out of space as soon as it came out the box, first I am supposed to download an autoc2d, which required a cd which I didn't have and the machine doesn't have a cd drive! Then something to do with 'BIOS'.....IF THE MACHINE IS NOT FIT FOR PURPOSE DON'T SELL IT. It's not up to customers to put ASUS's mistakes right. And don't get me started on the battery that doesn't hold a charge....back to the shop with this baby.
Good: Screen and size
Comment: This machine is vitually useless as the C Drive keeps running out of memory with virtually no programmes loaded except Baic Norton and MS Money.
What can I do?????
Good: It does everything I expectd it to.
Bad: Nothing, cn live with the package
Comment: Actually my model is the predecessor, using 2GB DDRII, Windows XP Home with a 8 GB HDSD card. What it all runs.... and runs it all well, thank you.
MS Office 2003 Pro
Adobe Reader 8
Debut Camera Software
Ramdisk (Just for the fun of it)
I've housed one movie to it (For the fun of it)
It houses heaps of pictures.
Essentially with an external HDD for large storage, and a 19" Panel it has replaced my Desktop. On the road it is a beaut of a Laptop.
I'd advise the thing to anybody.
I've even used it on 2nd life.
